The conflict in the Christian life is not first and foremost with the culture around us, it’s with the inner self. It’s not our evangelistic events that draw people to Christ, but our life together. Peter calls Christians to abstain from fleshly desires, not simply so we can invite friends to evangelistic events. Rather, our lives are the evangelistic events. Our life together is a beautiful apologetic.
Scripture: 1 Peter 2:11-12
